Director, Sustainable FERC Project
As NRDC's representative to the Sustainable FERC Project—a coalition of state, regional, and national organizations working with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to increase clean energy use—Allison Clements finds new ways of connecting clean energy providers with utilities, with the ultimate goal of ending America's dependence on dirty fuels. Prior to this role, she spent three years serving as NRDC's corporate counsel while simultaneously maintaining a policy practice in renewable energy deployment. Before that, she worked at a pair of large law firms, where her responsibilities included advising utilities and independent power producers regarding FERC law. Clements holds a bachelor's degree in environmental policy from the University of Michigan and a JD from the George Washington University Law School. She is based in New York City.
